Prepare. Train. Deploy

CRI Academy is the online extension of Crisis Response International’s disaster relief and crisis response ministry training and certification program. Our vision is to train and mobilize people just like you to crisis situations around the world to bring God's love and mercy where it's most needed. Most of all, you will learn how to meet the urgent practical needs as you minister in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Our newly updated Responder Training Course can be completed in under 8 hours and is designed to impart the basic knowledge, values, and skills an individual needs to become a CRI Responder (required to respond with CRI).

Prepare. Train. Deploy
Regardless of if or how often you deploy with CRI, this online Academy will help you be much better equipped to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of people in the midst of crisis and disaster anywhere you are.

CRI Academy online courses are designed for individual use only. For information about training for churches or use of CRI Academy for a small group please email [email protected].

How it works

All courses are designed so that you can work through them at your own pace. All courses require watching videos/presentations. Participation in Basic & Advanced Chaplaincy courses requires completing several questions after most videos to advance forward. In order to earn your Certificate of Completion, you will need to watch all videos/presentations and get 80% of the quiz questions right after each section (if the course includes quizzes). It's that simple!
